SCP Auctions: More Dodger Goodies

Along with the Bill Russell Collection I featured a couple of days ago, SCP Auctions has available for sale more Dodgers memorabilia items worth taking note of; including collectibles from Steve Garvey and items from former Dodger catcher Rick Dempsey.  Check my favorites below.  Be sure to click any pick to embiggen.

This is the first time I've seen this kind of commemorative Dodger Baseball, so I'm unsure of its origins.  This was within Garvey's personal collection and has been signed by him.

Here is another Stave Garvey item.  Below is his game-used 3rd baseman glove.

It's easy to forget that Rick Dempsey was a part of the 1988 World Series Champion Dodgers.  He joined the club as a free agent to be their backup catcher.  Better regarded as a defensive specialist he went on to have one of his finest offensive season of his career that year.  Per Phil Gurnee at True Blue LA:
Splitting time with Mike Scoscia, Dempsey tore up left handed pitching, posting a career best 129 OPS+. Rick only had 198 plate appearances but he made the most of them, hitting 13 doubles, and seven home runs.
Below is his 1988 World Series Championship ring.

The Jackie Robinson bust below is just plain cool looking.  From the auction description:
From Bret Saberhagen's personal collection comes this 18-inch high near-lifesize bronze bust of Jackie Robinson by acclaimed artist and sculptor Palmer Murphy. Murphy's work is well known within the sports memorabilia hobby, including producing a number of different busts and even some of the "modern" Hartland statues, but these spectacular bronze pieces issued by the Hall of Fame remain among his most notable entries in the sports field.
